Q:

My baby has not passed stool since 4 days. He is 35 days old and only breastfeed. Kindly advice.



Hi, babies on exclusive breastfeeding sometimes don't even pass stools for a week or so, since breast milk is completely digestible. If the baby is gassy then apply heeng paste on his navel area, and while massaging, move his legs in cycling motion. If the baby is active, and feeding well then nothing to worry.

Hi it's normal but you need to increase your breastfeeding session. Are you breastfeeding every 2 hrs? Till 40 days you need to feed every 2 hrs and whenever demanded. You drink minimum 4 litres of water per day and feed the baby.
